While the Chief Justice would preside over the Senate trial proceeding, it will still be the Senate that votes along partisan lines.

Sirhan Sirhan's vote certainly counted, as did Communist/Castro supporter Lee Harvey Oswald's. But so did that of John Wilkes Booth. What if the president decides on a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the home town of a strong Republican candidate? The ballot box should always have priority over the bullet box.

The house has the votes to impeach. The Senate will vote along party lines, and the result will be acquittal. The trial will merely be a public show with the outcome decided in advance.

As long as the senate has more than 40 Democrats, there is no way a Democrat president will ever be convicted. Why impeach when the trial results are a given? The trial should have been conducted with Bill Clinton, but the Republicans took a dive. As a result, too many Republicans stayed home in 2008. The party of Lincoln no longer stands for what it was originally created to stand for. Likewise, us Democrats have been abandoned by our party. Viva la revolucion.

Hence the term self serving, self perpetuating bureaucracy.

If one has the right to die or refuse medical treatment, why not the right to take experimental drugs, or permit oneself to be a subject of scientific experimentation? It certainly is preferable to Steve McQueen going to Mexico for coffee enemas.

This is not forced morality, but the enforcement of laws, authority, and the incidental protection of others.

There are certain universal concepts that are considered moral, such as not murdering, marital fidelity, family, not stealing, and others, such as each society having their version of the golden rule for treating others. Then there are "moral" rules imposed by those who are mostly concerned with their own imposition of power and authority, which is how most tyrants behave. Successful tyrants invariably connect themselves to some kind of religion, but not all religions are kind and forgiving.

I see no conflict between libertarian vs. tea party vs. conservative. Some libertarians support the removal of bans on goods and services people want and are willing to pay black market prices to get. These ideas are not necessarily bad ones. Tea party types advocate balanced budgets and reductions of the power and size of the 4th branch of government, the bureaucracy which no longer even answers to the president or congress. " Conservatives" who want to be me too Democrats are not true conservatives, but instead are liberals who happen to want to ban things different from those of the mainstream liberalism. The party of Lincoln should embrace the tea party and libertarians. Yes, there are tea party democrats, such as myself, and balanced budget advocates, such as myself. Unfortunately, the Democrats abandoned us in the 70's. They are going to pay the price at the polls very soon. VIVA LA REVOLUCION.
If our military bases can provide housing and medical care for thousands of illegal aliens, why not put the illegal aliens loose on the streets, and provide medical services to veterans to relieve the over burdened VA. I have been treated by the VA since 1973, and have nothing but good things to say about the doctors, nurses, and other support personel. It is the administrative gnomes who cut costs to make bonuses available for themselves that are the problem. Yes, we need more doctors and nurses, which require more offices, which require more and improved buildings. The average veteran can be expected to live until 80, so it will be decades before the number of VA patients decrease, and that is assuming we do not have to deploy more troops as we try to police the world and keep terrorists overseas instead of here.
